£250,000 for Rethink Waste 8 March 2012

Minister Attwood announces a further £250,000 Rethink Waste funding

Environment Minister Alex Attwood has announced the launch of Rethink Waste’s third year of funding revenue grants totalling £250,000 for 2012/13.

The Rethink Waste grants will be available for revenue projects that will reduce waste to landfill through recycling or reuse activity for Community and Voluntary groups, the private sector, Councils and the three Waste Management Groups.

Over the past two years 18 Rethink Waste (Revenue) Fund Grants have been awarded for projects aimed at targeting behavioural change to encourage the reducing, reusing and recycling of waste.

Commenting on the funding at East Belfast Mission Minister Attwood said: “I have today seen first hand how the Community and Voluntary sector is providing a source for the donation of a wide range of furniture and bicycles some of which would undoubtedly end up in landfill. These items are being turned into good quality reusable assets and making a valuable contribution to the economy. Jobs and training places are being created as well as opportunities for volunteering.

“I am already on record as stating that we need to do more in terms of recycling, and I am also supportive of this type of project which is actively diverting waste from landfill.

“This is the third year in which the Rethink Waste Fund revenue grants are on offer. Over the past two years many Community and Voluntary Groups as well as a small number of private sector applicants have been successful in obtaining grants for revenue projects to encourage behavioural change and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. I urge these bodies to submit high quality proposals to help us divert ever greater amounts of waste from landfill.”

Further details on the application process, including the assessment criteria, application form and guidance notes are available on http://www.rethinkwasteni.org
